The Audi R8 took its inspiration from the Audi cars racing at Le Mans. Looking back over seventy years of innovation in motorsport the team at Audi came up with an awesome road car, the Audi A8.
With a classic mid-engine layout the Audi A8 has a breathtaking profile, the sleek, honed lines of the A8 bodywork housing a rev-happy 4.2 ,litre V8 that will hit 60mph in just 4.6 seconds as it keeps on powering towards a 187pmh top speed. Such immense power is transmitted to the road through the permanent Audi A8 four wheel drive Quattro system, making this an eminently usable supercar.
Audi R8 Design
The new Audi R8 has the appearance of crouching tiger, sat low and wide on the road but ready to leap up with speed and agility in a heartbeat. Looking around the Audi R8 there are many key design points to highlight, from the modified but still distinctly Audi trademark single-frame radiator grille through to the sideblades that make the R8 even more distinctive with their contrasting colours. Other drivers will also be well aware that the Audi R8 is in their vicinity thanks to the sculpted daytime running lights they will initially see in their rearview mirror, followed closely by the LED rear lights as they watch the Audi R8 disappear into the distance.
Audi R8 Performance
Audi R8 performance is delivered through a combination of classic sports car hallmarks and leading edge technological developments. The big and strong V8 engine is located in the heart of the car like all great sports cars, delivering 420PS and 430Nm of torque. Putting all this power on the road is a six speed manual or race-derived R-tronic sequential shift gearbox with paddle control. The wheels of the Audi R8 are controlled by the Quattro four wheel drive system to ensure optimum drive in all circumstances.
Audi R8 Technology
Thanks to its racing heritage the new Audi R8 is rich in technology. Any car that performs at the level the Audi R8 does needs to embrace modern technology in order to achieve such standards. Audi has always followed the Vorsprung durch Technik – Advancement through Technology – ethos and the Audi R8 is testament to this.
As well as the already mentioned Quattro four wheel drive, sequential shift gearbox, and technologically advanced engine the Audi R8 also has features such as the rear spoiler which is activated only when sensors on the car, constantly measuring the attitude of the car, feel it would benefit from additional downforce.
Audi R8 Safety
At the extreme levels of performance offered by the Audi R8 it is essential to provide levels of reassurance to the driver. Having confidence in the safety of a car makes it easier and more enjoyable to drive well. The new Audi R8 achieves this admirably, with large, ventilated disc brakes fitted as standard to stop the car from any speed and the latest version of the Audi Electronic Stability Programme to control power to each wheel. The interior of the Audi R8 again uses motorsport derived safety features in the form of a secure occupant cell protected by energy absorbing sections.
